Climbing the Dune

Very steep large sandune
NPS postcard

Leaning in to the steepest part,
Sliding back as much as going up,
Sand crumbling underfoot, reaching out
For a handful of slippery nothing,
Laughing at the slide, then climb again,
Because, well, that’s what you do.
And sooner, but probably later,
All will come slipping and climbing over the top
Still laughing.
